Belay Better – Part 2

This is Part 2 of the Petzl Series on Belaying.

 

Who is the one that checks that you are properly tied in before leaving the ground?
Who yells out the beta that helps you move upward when you can’t find the next hold?
Who helps keep you from hitting the ground after slipping off that greasy hold?
Upon redpointing your project, who is the first one to praise and congratulate you?

Your belayer.

 

A climbing partnership is a two-way street, and that means that you need to be just as good of a belayer as your partner is for you.

Check out this great video featuring Petzl Athlete Jorg Verhoven on how to belay a climber on lead.
